Height: 6 feet, 7 inches.

Weight: 323 pounds.

NFLDraftScout.com projection: First- or second-round pick.

Breakdown: Adams met with media today at the NFL Scouting Combine and said the Browns and the Washington Redskins have talked to him about playing right tackle. Adams played left tackle for the Buckeyes, but he's willing to moving to the other side of the line. "I'm open to do whatever a team needs me to do," Adams said. The Browns might be looking to upgrade at right tackle because starter Tony Pashos has been plagued by injuries and struggled in pass protection the past two seasons. When asked Wednesday if the Browns need to upgrade at right tackle, Shurmur mentioned last year’s starter, Tony Pashos, but Shurmur also said, "We’ll have to see who’s going to play there at this point." Adams might be a player the Browns could target with the 22nd overall pick. "I think my athleticism and blocking space is definitely my strength," Adams said. "I like to play through the whistle in the run game. I would say that (I need to improve) my consistency of technique in pass play. I get my hands a little bit too wide sometimes and maybe over-setting are two things that I definitely need to work on." Adams was suspended for the first five games of his senior season at Ohio State because of his involvement in the tattoo scandal that led to coach Jim Tressel's forced resignation. "I think my character is something that my teammates and coaches at Ohio State will vouch for," Adams said. "Anybody that knows me knows that I'm not a bad guy. I might have made some mistakes, but I definitely learned from them."
